Easter’s only five days away, so of course I had to send Jack to school with a bunny-themed lunch today. I totally copied the Hoppy Friday lunch from Keeley McGuire, who always makes beautiful lunches for her daughter (thank you for the inspiration, Keeley!). Mine didn’t turn out as nicely, but Jack could tell they were bunnies when I showed him his lunch this morning, so, as far as I’m concerned, mission accomplished! This is packed in an EasyLunchbox.
In the main compartment, we have two bunnies made from peanut butter-filled sandwich balls (click on the bold link for a tutorial). I made each bunny with one 3″ sandwich ball and two 1.5″ sandwich balls (one slice of bread makes one bunny). I cut the ears from the bread scraps and used food markers to draw the details. On top of the bunnies are silicone muffin cups filled with carrot and celery sticks. (Jack commented that he would be sure to “pretend-feed” the veggies to the bunnies before eating them.)
The top left compartment is filled with strawberries and clementine wedges with a bunny pick, and the bottom left compartment contains a peeled, hard-boiled “Easter egg” decorated with food markers.
I also have two bonus lunches to show you today. While Jack’s in school, I’m meeting up with my sister-in-law, Victoria, and four-year-old niece at Irvine Regional Park for a picnic. Victoria’s bringing food for us, and I’m in charge of the kids’ lunches (yay!). Here’s Maddy’s lunch, packed in a two-tiered box:
She has sliced strawberries with a giraffe pick in the top tier. The bottom tier holds some Goldfish, mozzarella cheese chunks (a string cheese that I cut up into squares), and some ham roll-ups.
Derek also has a two-tiered box:
One tier holds an Easter-egg shaped sandwich (filled with Nutella and decorated with food markers), strips of orange bell pepper, and ham roll-ups in a silicone muffin cup. The other tier holds sliced strawberries and a little fork I got at Daiso.
We’re off to enjoy this sunny spring day!
